How to Secure Your Trailer Manger Hay Pillow to Keep It in Place
To keep your Manger Hay Pillow® in place, secure at least two corners with our adjustable straps (sold separately). Depending on your horse’s personality, it may be necessary to secure your Hay Pillow by more than two corners to allow for continuous feeding.
If not secured properly:
Our made in the USA straps (sold separately) contain no metal hardware to scratch your trailer and were designed with safety in mind. The straps thread easily through the tabs of your Manger Hay Pillow.
No Manger or Attachment Site?
If your manger does not have an
attachment site, install eye straps.
- To help keep your horse hydrated during transport, drench your hay with water, let it drain and use the 4" X 6" mesh size. Wet hay may be too challenging to extract from the 1 3/4" mesh size.
- Take water from home and offer along the way (horses that are reluctant to drink water may be even more reluctant to do so if the water tastes different). If you can’t take water with you, start adding something to flavor the water at home in a separate bucket (to experiment with their preferred flavor) such as powdered Kool Aid® or Gatorade®. Once you discover their favorite flavor, take it with you for travel to mask the taste of unfamiliar water sources.

Manger Hay Pillow Testimonials
"Thank you for the Manger Hay Pillow®. It's such a relief to finally have a solution to keep my horses hay in the manger, off the floor and out of their eyes. I can haul with the windows open and they are so much happier when we arrive at our destination." ~ Mariah
"Manger Hay Pillow is a great bag for hauling. My horses were so frustrated, the hay always ended up on the horse trailer floor and they couldn’t eat it! Easy to load and strap into the mangers. They are happy campers and love their Hay Pillows. Thank you for designing a bag to accommodate such a unique application." ~Theresa
"Beau will get a lot of use out of our Manger Hay Pillow! It fits perfectly in my Featherlite straight load horse trailer." ~ Robin
"As an endurance rider, getting my horses to eat as much hay as possible is a top priority, and I typically travel several hours to get to events. Previously, I would place hay in the mangers of my slant-load trailer and would be exasperated when I arrived: the majority of the hay was always on the floor. My horses were frustrated because they were hungry and couldn’t get to the hay even though they could see it. Since I started using the Manger Hay Pillow, I have found that my horses will typically eat about 1-3 pounds of hay when traveling a few hours. Almost no hay is on the floor, and the uneaten hay is compactly restrained in the pillow. Further, I don’t worry about hay getting in their eyes because the hay stays in the hay pillow. My younger mare in particular is a chow hound, and she arrives much more relaxed because she’s been eating. She’s also the one that finds a way to destroy the indestructible, and my Manger Hay Pillows are completely intact after several months. I also like to use the hay pillow as a hay bag. With a bucket strap, it connects to the outside trailer hook very quickly so that my 16+ hand mares have plenty to eat. I’ve been using the Manger Hay Pillow for a few months now and consider it to be a staple item. This is a much-needed accessory for anyone that transports horses in a slant-load trailer with mangers." ~Jo
"We have this Manger Hay pillow in the 4x6 opening and love them!! We are full timers traveling with our 2 horses...no brick and stick house! Our Hay Bags have been used for almost 4 years and are still holding up well! ~ Lee Ann
"What a wonderful product. I love the Hay Pillow Manger for my horse trailer going from barrel to trail riding my ponies need to munch and are much happier that they can. My favorite part of the Manger large squares is that I’m in AZ so I have my drop down windows open. Regular hay nets blow around and I loose a great deal of hay!" ~ C.J.
"I love mine. Stopped all that loose hay on the floor of the trailer. It also helps with choke...Small bites. And keeps them entertained longer." ~ Sally
